Have you heard of the Scrapbookingstore Monthly Kit? You may have seen it on my Ultimate List of Scrapbook Monthly Kit Clubs. I am so excited to be partnering with the Scrapbookingstore to review their monthly kits! (I received this kit at no charge for my honest review, all thoughts are 100% my own!) My first kit came in the mail recently and love it. I wanted to share my Scrapbookingstore Monthly Kit Review with my fellow papercrafters! 🙂
Scrapbookingstore Monthly Kit Review
I received the March Upgraded Kit and am really happy with it. First off, I love that scrapbook kits take away the extra work. I don’t have to go to the trouble to COORDINATE all my papers and embellishments because the company and designers have done it for me.
- I liked the coordinating products included in this kit. The papers were all from Teresa Collins. I adored the color scheme of the papers–it really got me in the mood for some spring scrapping.
- There was one page of the “stories” included. This is similar to Project Life. I like having a cardstock sheet of these stories because they are perfect for journaling or using for my Project Life albums!
- There was a 12×12 page of die cuts and another 12×12 page of stickers that all coordinate with the papers. I am partial to these large sheets of extra embellishments. 🙂
- The cardstock is PREMIUM—nice and thick. Plus it is all double-sided and that gives me a lot more options for my layouts.
- The upgraded kit comes with extra embellishments and personally I don’t think you can ever have too many embellishments. The extras were a variety of brands: My Mind’s Eye, Teresa Collins, Heidi Swapp, American Crafts and Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper. I liked the quality of all the extras, but my favorite is the Teresa Collins package of die cut borders. I know these will get used!!
Only One Suggestion to Make
The only thing I would like to see is MORE ideas for using the kit. I get “stuck” sometimes and like to have a lot of layout ideas. Although the kit does come with one layout idea, but I would love to see more ideas included. While I know that this isn’t important to everyone, but it is a preference of mine. I know that they do sometimes have layouts on their blog and social media. 🙂
Scrapbookingstore Prices Are Amazing
I have done a LOT of research on monthly scrapbooking kits. There have been several different monthly kits I have personally subscribed to over the years. I can honestly say that the price of the Scrapbookingstore kit is AMAZING! Here is the breakdown:
- If you buy the kit month to month with no commitment the basic kit cost is $15.99 and that INCLUDES SHIPPING!!!
- A 3 month prepaid commitment is $15.66 per month with shipping included.
- If you prepay for a 6 month commitment the cost is $15.00 per month with shipping included.
- The best value is to prepay for a 12 month commitment the cost is $14.00 per month with shipping included.
- It is $7 extra to upgrade your kit and it is totally worth it! Meanwhile, you are getting WAY more then $7 in extras! Plus there is no additional shipping charges to upgrade.
There are not many monthly scrapbooking kits that include shipping for free. Shipping usually runs $7 to $10 bucks extra on top of the kit cost. Most of all, I feel like this kit is a really good value.
